XBMC - Raspbian

If you want to install XBMC on your Raspberry Pi using  Raspbian and got dependency problems, you can download it from this repo by adding the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list

# XBMC Repo
deb http://archive.mene.za.net/raspbian wheezy contrib

Then update and install XBMC:

root@raspberry:~# aptitude update
root@raspberry:~# aptitude install xbmc

After that, you can start it on boot and increase the priority level by editing file /etc/default/xbmc with these parameters:

# Set this to 1 to enable startup
# The user to run XBMC as
# Adjust niceness of XBMC (decrease for higher priority)

Remember to disable the LXDE or XFCE start on boot (you can ue rasp-config). Enjoy it!
